CHEYENNE, Wyo. -- The Wyoming National Guard's Camp Guernsey Joint Training Center will increase its activities during the next several months.
Approximately 44 units will be training with more than 5,000 Soldiers, Airmen, Highway Patrol and Civil Air Patrol cadets from around Wyoming, and numerous states to include: Wisconsin, Colorado, New Mexico, Nebraska, Montana, and Minnesota. In addition, Active Duty units and Civil Air Patrol will also train at the camp.
As such, local and regional residents can expect to see an increase in population and activity associated with this training. The units will conduct artillery direct fire, grenade launcher training, land navigation, weapons qualification and close-air support to name a few of the training activities.
The Wyoming Military Department has retained Ayres Associates to conduct a boundary survey of Camp Guernsey's North Training Area this summer, as well. The field work for the survey will consist of searching for existing property corners, and re-establishing missing property corners. Missing survey corners will be reset with 24-inch rebar driven into the ground with an aluminum cap on top. The surveyors will use metal detectors and survey grade GPS units to locate existing corners and reset missing corners.
